Sign of success that comes with using Morgan PR

When so many traditional pub signs are vanishing, The Hare & Hounds at Speen proudly unveiled its new sign during a recent charity day in aid of Swings and Smiles, and after owner Jonathan Nelsey contacted Morgan PR everyone now knows the story after we helped to get it published in the local media.

The sign was designed by renowned cartoonist and retired Colonel, Chip Wood following a chance stay at the hotel.

“I love the way Chip turned the fortunes of the traditional hunting theme," Jonathan says. "Now the hounds are waiting on the hares. Being a country lad, I wanted mostly to create a traditional sign using the theme of the Hare and Hounds, and too give it a bit of fun. I’m delighted with the result and hope it will be the face of the Inn for many years to come.”

Swings and Smiles is the Hare & Hounds at Speen’s nominated charity and the recent event was held to mark the completion of extensive refurbishment at the historic inn which has brought its 30 bedrooms up to three star standard.
